Spring at the Castle ParkPublished on 30 April 2018
We recommend a stroll through the gardens of Peralada Castle, which were designed in 1887 by Belgian landscape artist François Duvillers. The garden are home to almost countless wonders, from a lush range of tree and plant species, both Mediterranean and exotic, to a colony of white storks with recently hatched chicks and a 19th century aviary.
In addition to the storks, as you walk through the park, you will see a French rose garden, yews, bottle trees, magnolias, pines and cypresses, as well as an over two-hundred-year-old holm oak that was there before the park was created. You will also enjoy the 19th-century aviary, which is inhabited by pheasants and different species of doves; the cave, which was built in 1877; and finally, the striking medieval façade of the castle.
